      Couple questions regarding the bonus tables:

      1. Are they exclusive to the bet365 skin? No players on the rest of the ipoker network have access to these tables?

      2. Is it possible to change the names of the bonus tables? When more than one table opens at a limit, there are two bonus tables of the same name - i.e. bonus table 7 appears twice. Really messes up the hud when both tables of the same name are being played. I realize PS can't fix this, but if the suggestion could be forwarded to the right people it would be appreciated.

      Hi there,

      Many apologies for answering so late.

      1. The tables are exclusive to bet365, so other ipoker skins won't have them.

      2. They will investigate to see if there is anything they can do to resolve this.

      Should you have any further questions please don't hesitate to ask.

      Thanks Marcus, appreciate the response. Is there a timeframe as to how long these tables might last, or is this a potentially permanent addition for the forseeable future?

      Thanks Hannes.

      I find it curious that you had the answer while the live chat support person had no idea - awesome that PS is 'in the know'

      These tables are so fishy its quite simply off the chain. I love getting to play exclusively with bet365 gambling uber fish. Its great for bet365 too since they get all the rake, rather than their many attrocious players losing to players from other networks, so I dont see any reason for them to end the promotion any time soon, if anything they should add in a few higher limits. :s_biggrin:

      Hi adammclad and Welcome to PokerStrategy.com

      On the higher limits there are also 6 max tables available. Full ring is easier to play, so I recommend you to play FR instead of 6 max.

      If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

      Best regards,
      Hannes

      Yeah, these tables are very very very fishy. If you play at bet365, you have no reason whatsoever to not be on these tables.

      10NL and 20NL

      I had a free bankroll from pokerstrategy, and in the terms it says:

      Once you've cleared the bonus, you can get a First Deposit Bonus from bet365 of 100% up to $500. Simply deposit money into your account and you will get twice that amount, credited to your account (including the bonus money).


      I got the 5000 points required to cash out, so I cashed out with the plan to deposit again and clear the first deposit bonus. But the bet365 advisor from the live chat told me I'm not eligible for that bonus because I have used the PS150 code.

      Now I'm not sure whether I should stay at the fishy bonustables at 365, or go to another pokerroom and get rakeback + first deposit bonus...

      Hello F1D35,

      The 100% up to $500 bonus is for you not available, because you received the free $50 starting capital. However you should get a different bonus. Can you please contact our customer service for further details.

      We also offer plenty off other rooms where you can get rakeback, first deposit bonuses etc. Have a look here:
      The Best Bonuses in Online Poker

      If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

      Best regards,
      Hannes
